    jadiva,
    Glad they changed your grade. I think some were having problems finding the rubrics during the first week of class. Just realized that the last test is comprehensive, ugh, and worth about 30% of the grade. How is everyone else?

    I noticed that there was a comprehensive test too. Didn't realize that it was 30% of the grade. Guess I gotta make it work.

    This class is so frustrating! I can't never get the discussions right, I got another 50% because I didn't know I needed the "AEB", ugh! I didn't see any instructions about how to do the discussion. I haven't started on this week's assignments yet, and I can't believe we have a comprehensive test worth 30% :O

    How are you all doing?

    Looking at the last assignment I wonder if copy & paste would be appropriate. I can't believe we have to write all those assessments again. My AC said we should start now with our corrections made so we won't get behind. Seriously?...

    Week 5 apparently is comprehensive assessment. I haven't even looked at it yet. Yes, I think this class is a lot of work for nurses that have to work with families. It's too much now.

    I think this is all repeated information over and over again. I don't think they'll care if we repeat what we said if you had already asked the patient about that specific body part, etc or assessed that patient's area before, but I would put appropriate references. Is there such thing as self-plagiarism?...Well, there is! According to Wikipedia (2012), "Self-plagiarism (also known as "recycling fraud"[50]) is the reuse of significant, identical, or nearly identical portions of one's own work without acknowledging that one is doing so or without citing the original work. Articles of this nature are often referred to as duplicate or multiple publication. In addition to the ethical issue, this can be illegal if copyright of the prior work has been transferred to another entity. Typically, self-plagiarism is only considered to be a serious ethical issue in settings where a publication is asserted to consist of new material, such as in academic publishing or educational assignments..."

    I have a question about COLDSPA...If my patient has zero complaints this week I don't have to do one, is that right?

    Thank you for your help!

    Must include ONE each subjective assignment. Ask them about a past/recent complaint and document. Been doing that all along now because my pt is very healthy .

    Amy, I would say you could go ahead and copy and paste everything, that's what I'm planning on doing. I'm going to fix the mistakes that have been corrected, then copy and paste everything onto the final assignment. Talk about a heavily weighted final exam as well, 30% can make or break you. At least the quizzes have been straightforward to this point.

    I'd go with Amy's suggestion. Some good ones are headache, stubbed toe, indigestion, etc.

    You have to do one every week, so grab anything that you can. HA, nausea, even a passing nasal sniffle will be good enough.

    Thank you so much for all the help ya'll. I did attach a COLDSPA, I guess there is no other way. I finally did a discussion right!! How is everyone doing?

    Hello Rosi. Hanging in there as well. This is a lot of work, but I'll take it one day at a time. I just received my registration date for spring 2013. I'm excited about finishing next year
